Is Oklahoma considering Terry Evans at UCO? Consider this from the OCU website.
Now in his ninth year at the helm of the Central Oklahoma men’s program is Terry Evans, a former college standout who has built the Bronchos into a perennial Lone Star Conference and NCAA Division II power.
Evans is 163-76 in eight years at UCO -- including a 74-19 mark the last three seasons -- and has directed the Bronchos to six national tournament appearances, five LSC North Division titles and one overall league crown.
He’s had five 20-win seasons in the past six years -- including a school-record 28-win campaign in 2007-08 -- and has coached 13 All-LSC North Division players while earning LSC North Division Coach of the Year honors four times.
Terry took over the helm in 2002-03 and promptly guided the Bronchos to a 19-10 campaign, with UCO advancing to the national tournament for the first time since 1998. Central fell to 11-17 in 2003-04, but returned with a vengeance the next season.
The Bronchos finished 22-8 in 2004-05 in capturing their first North Division title since 1998 and making it to the second round of the national tournament, with Evans earning LSC North Coach of the Year accolades.
UCO overcame a tough schedule to claim a share of its second straight LSC North championship and make it back to the national playoffs in 2005-06, finished 17-13.
The Bronchos narrowly missed out on a third straight LSC North Division title in 2006-07 and were denied a national tournament berth despite a 20-8 record.
Evans led UCO to the best season in school history in 2007-08, with the Bronchos winning a school-record 28 games in finishing 28-6.
UCO went 11-1 in taking the LSC North title, swept three games at the LSC Tournament to claim the overall conference championship and followed with a three-game run at the South Central Regional. The Bronchos pulled out a dramatic last-second win over host Tarleton State in the finals to claim their first regional title since 1992.
